Ujuayalogu'sBlog notes that in a statement on Friday, June 8, spokesman of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said: "In reacting to recent allegations by the Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha that the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, ‘disobeyed’ court orders regarding congresses in Imo state and inauguration of the state’s party executives, the APC wishes to state that these allegations are spurious as the party did not at any time receive any court injunctions regarding the congresses in Imo.

"In conducting the congresses across the country, in considering the outcomes of each one of them and in swearing in the respective state chairmen, the National Working Committee (NWC) had strictly followed the guiding rules and the constitution of the party.

“There is always room for redress where justified, hence, we encourage the Imo state governor to explore internal dispute resolution mechanisms spelt out by our constitution to address his perceived grievances.

While we urge compromise among party stakeholders, the party has already mandated the deputy national chairman (north), Sen Lawali Shuaibu, to head our reconciliation efforts following issues that arose from recently conducted ward, local government and state congresses."
